I have been unofficially diagnosed with Celiac for three years now, and it has taken me three years to fully understand a gluten free diet. Now I ask the question: Do grain fed livestock have an affect on my system?

Last month I went on a camping trip, and as I lay in a field of hay... I could only wonder if every breath I took was harming me...I know that gluten is only supposed to affect your digestive system, but if I am breathing it in, it follows through my nose and into my throat (and therefore absorbed through my saliva?)

As for eating chicken and beef, is that safe as well? There is a lot of labeling for purely grain fed livestock, but I have never hear of this affecting celiacs...

Any thoughts or experiences welcome!

It is generally accepted that meat is gluten-free no matter what the animal was fed. It is definitely not something that I worry about.

i doubt it is anything to worry about too. i DID read a recent study about gluten being found in human breast milk(from the mother's consumption).. and the author of the article suggested that it's a possibility that we may have a problem on our hands with grain fed dairy products..???
i try to get grass fed dairy at whole foods... but i dont stress when i have to get regular organic dairy. honestly, i probably should be avoiding dairy anyways.. but you know, baby steps...

Well hay is usually alfalfa not wheat. Alfalfa is gluten free...but some farmers to rotate their fields to grow alfalfa during one season and wheat during another. So alfalfa can be CC'd.
